Microsoft has teamed up with startup 22tracks, which focuses on helping consumers discover new music through curated playlists, to redesign its experience with touch in mind. If you're not familiar with 22tracks, the genre-based music collections are by multiple experts from different parts of the world. The two parties have come together to build a new HTML5 interface with numerous features.

Perfect for those wielding touch devices (like tablets and phones), the new 22tracks experience sports a new music control panel, interactive audio visualizer and even options to download tracks from Xbox Music. We recommend you check it out if you're both a fan of new music and touch-friendly web experiences. It's also a slight contrast to the news about Microsoft ignoring an Internet Explorer 8 vulnerability.

Touch is clearly the way forward with more form factors and devices being released, and we're excited to see what other experiences can be created. Here's a sweet helpful walkthrough to show you what's new on this touch-optimized web service:
